The hallmark "Michelin Star" looks like a mockery or a bad joke in this place. Menu is more than average, they brought us salad made of tomatoes and cucumbers even without dressing. No fantasy at all, like these were the last products that they had found in the fridge. The next awful thing is that I told the waiter that... More

We visited this place by chance when walking by because the atmosphere and settings looked really nice. They have a courtyard where you can sit and feel like being outside and also a nice indoor part. The place has a quality tapas part and a fancier restaurant with apparently one michelin star. We went to the restaurant and were not... More

We booked a table for La noche de San Juan's dinner -and definitely weren't disappointed. We have had also earlier an holiday in Alicante and that time it was hard to find a nice restaurant, so therefore we did this time some research forehand. Our party consistent of me and my husband, grandma and our two young kids; all of... More

Lovely location set in an alleyway between a boutique hotel. Perfectly set tables surrounded by trees and lights and exceptional service.

My wife and I dined at Monastrell for a recent birthday celebration and thoroughly enjoyed it. The service was excellent and was not over fussy as can happen in some up market restaurants. I thought that the food prices were reasonable for a Michelin star restaurant and was pleasantly surprised to discover that the wine list was not eye wateringly... More

Not a lot really to be said, except if you are at anytime in the vicinity of Alicante, this should be on your agenda for eating. The food is perfection on a plate and the service is not far behind.....A VERY ENJOYABLE EVENING!!!

Food was lovely, particularly the fish main course. Responsibly priced considering the quality of the food. The staff were friendly and all spoke English extremely well (as you would expect). We ate in the courtyard which had a lovely atmosphere. Not our favourite tapas restaurant in Alicante but definitely worth a visit.

Went into its sister restaurant in Playa San Juan and had a great meal so we made reservations for this one. It has a Michelin star and it is well deserved. The food was fabulous, the ambience was great. The wait staff was so enthusiastic in regards to the food and their job. Chef Maria Jose was very charming and... More

Struggled to find a quality restaurant in Alicante until we found this one by pure accident. Getting a table as a ‘walk in’ was not a problem much to my surprise. The olive oil tasting with fresh bread was an interesting experience and the taste of different oils was considerably more than I expected. The ceviche of tuna was almost... More
